Tebbutt (crater)

lunar crater data
diameter=31 km
eponym=John Tebbutt

Tebbutt is a lunar crater formation that is located near the southwestern edge of Mare Crisium. It was formerly designated 'Picard G' before being named by the IAU, and lies south of Picard crater. To the north of Tebbutt, but further east than Picard, is the flooded Lick crater.

This crater has a worn and damaged outer rim along its eastern half, but the rim is all but nonexistent on the western face — being little more than a pair of curved ridges beneath the surface. Lava flows have overflowed this western rim and submerged the interior, leaving a relatively level and featureless interior. A small craterlet marks the southern end of the interior floor, and several tiny craters mark the surviving rim.
